The singer was present at the big concert in honor of the Queen in London, but was not satisfied with a song he performed. Then why did he sing it?

The British singer Rod Stewart (“Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?”) According to his own statement, he was not happy with his performance at the anniversary concert for Queen Elizabeth II.

In addition to his own hit “Baby Jane”, he surprisingly sang Neil Diamond’s hit song “Sweet Caroline” in front of Buckingham Palace on Saturday – and felt a little uncomfortable with it. “It’s a bit strange for me to sing that,” Sir Rod said at the BBC’s Platinum Palace Party. “The BBC asked me to sing that.”

On social media, Stewart fans were disappointed with the song selection, also because the 77-year-old couldn’t convince everyone with his version of “Sweet Caroline”, which is popular in Great Britain. “It wasn’t my choice,” Stewart then emphasized in the BBC interview. “But it’s a great song, isn’t it?” the reporter replied. “Yes,” admitted Stewart. “But none of mine.”

After all, his fans in North America and Great Britain can soon look forward to more original songs by Rod Stewart. In mid-June, the singer with the distinctive curly mane begins his next tour. He probably won’t sing “Sweet Caroline” at the concerts. There are no dates for Germany yet.
